Rights NGOs urge France to charge IDF soldier with ‘war crimes’

France should bring forth "war crime" charges against the IDF soldier who shot and killed a "neutralized" Palestinian terrorist if the Israeli judicial system fails to convict him, numerous Human Rights organizations said Wednesday.

Foreign media sources revealed this week that the soldier in question is a dual Israeli-French citizens and is therefore subject to the legal clause of universal jurisdiction.

As a result, France has the authority to prosecute the soldier, only known as A. due to a military gag order, regardless of the of the fact that the alleged crime took place on foreign soil, according to Newsweek.
